The FDA says chemicals used in antibacterial soaps like triclosan and triclocarban may affect hormone levels and should be tested for safety. “Due to consumers’ extensive exposure to the ingredients in antibacterial soaps, we believe there should be a clearly demonstrated benefit to balance any potential risk,” said FDA official Janet Woodcock.

For the consumer, the problem for skin is that antibacterial soaps and cleansers contain triclosan or triclocarban (the most typical antibacterial agents used), and there is little to no independent scientific data published to suggest that using these products prevents infection.

  • Liked the video, good job extrapolating on the effects of long term antibacterial use in creating a superbug. I just wanted to provide my thoughts on the length of time given for the trials for the company. 1 year may seem like a drastically long time for a study to go on for but in reality these companies will be testing hundreds of their soaps and individual ingredients on thousands of strains of household bacteria. To provide accurate data to the FDA requires quite large and expensive studies so to insure that all the companies are fairly treated large amounts of time for testing are necessary. On the point of not removing these products from the shelves, the claims for hormone imbalances are not really scientifically solid until a lot more testing is done. Currently it is a concern, but only a minor one. On top of this is the fact that taking these products off the shelves could bankrupt some smaller companies and thus stop them from providing data from studies to the FDA.

    These are just the thoughts of a biotech/microbiology enthusiast, and I thank you for spreading the work about this problem with triclosin use in your video.
